Brazilians ready to Samba

Roberto Carlos and Ronaldinho arrive for the training session in Weggis, Switzerland. Brazil's World Cup squad is in Switzerland for a two week training camp before heading to Germany.

Ronaldinho is bracing himself to be singled out by the opposition, eager to nullify the World Footballer of the Year’s deft footwork next month. "I am prepared for that, but I think I won’t be the only one," he said.

The Barcelona playmaker reckons he’s matured since his part in helping Brazil win the 2002 World Cup which included a fine goal against England in the quarter-finals.
